Abstract: As simulation becomes increasingly used in healthcare education, there is pressure on a number of active participants in a simulation scenario. There is also a perception that the learner is the only active participant. However, there is evidence that observers of simulation can learn effectively, provided that they are given direction (O’Regan, Molloy, Watterson, & Nestel, 2016).

The purpose of this presentation is to provide strategies for improving learning for observers, both through an understanding what makes observers become active observers and a consideration of factors that impact upon satisfaction in the observer role.
